7-year-old arrested for ganja possession

Four underage boys were arrested at a West Bay play field Saturday morning on suspicion of ganja possession.

The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service took the four boys, ages 7-12, into custody following a report of ganja smoking at Ed Bush play field after 10 a.m. that day.

According to police, two of the boys were released into the custody of their parents. Two others were arrested and booked into police custody on suspicion of possession of and consuming ganja. They were also returned to their parents’ custody.

Typically, the RCIPS does not record the arrests of juveniles under age 10 in its crime statistics.
